This BYOB restaurant is in a beautiful area of Ocean Springs - very quaint and a lovely neighborhood. The inside is a little bland but the servers are very attentive and the food was plentiful. We were a group of 7 and started out with 3 appetizers (fried tomatoes, oysters and crab legs) , all of which were delicious but... More

After over two years of using this restaurant to host business events regularly, the owner of this otherwise nice restaurant showed his true colors. The week of our most recent event he claimed that we were not on his reservation list and he had another group booked. Even though we had booked 4 months earlier with a specific hostess, he... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Ocean Springs, and one of the best on the Gulf Coast. Their menu has a huge variety of seafood, Lebanese, and even Mexican. An odd combination, but our party had some of it all, and all was simply outstanding. I had the redfish and it was extraordinary. Appetizers are not to be... More

I took a friend for her birthday lunch, arriving about 12:30pm on a Friday afternoon. There is parking in a vacant lot across the street but all parking on this street is challenging. The restaurant is lovely, food is delicious and quite generous portions (we took leftovers home), wait staff was attentive but not pushy. The complimentary hummus was a... More

Ocean Springs is such a small town it's rather surprising to find such a good restaurant with so many delicious choices. Phoenicia has a large list of steaks and seafood dishes. All are gourmet quality, tasty, and beautifully presented. I highly recommend this restaurant. There were 4 of us last night and we were all truly satisfied with our choices.... More

Phoenicia's is a unusual place to find in South Mississippi but it is certainly worth a meal. We had Mediterranean Shrimp and Humus as well great coffee after a morning on the road. This is a white tablecloth Restaurant with attentive service. It is in the Ocean Springs downtown area and has been serving food since the 90's. It has... More

We got the steak with shrimp special. It was very good. Also got a petite sirloin, I give it 5/10. It was dry and they don't have steak sauce at all. The ambiance was very nice. The place was great for a romantic diner. Staff was friendly. Understand that you need to bring your own alcohol. The don't serve any... More

I have been to Phoenicia several times as it had become my favorite place to eat lunch when visiting Ocean Springs. The food is always delicious, especially their signature rice side dish. It is their secret recipe-worth the trip there just for it! Been there for dinner several times also and enjoyed the evening menu dishes as well.

Not only is this venue air conditioned, and there is lots of seats, so waiting is not usually a problem, but the food is always consistently good!
